Existing PAC settings conflict with Endpoint Protection WSS Traffic Redirection
Last Updated August 14, 2018
You enable Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) WSS Traffic Redirection (WTR) within your environment. However, you notice that the proxy auto-configuration (PAC) file you manage by GPO conflicts with the PAC file used by WTR.
The WSS Traffic Redirection policy enables Symantec Endpoint Protection to configure PAC settings for the web browsers on the client computers. These settings can also be configured through other methods, such as through Windows GPO.
Configuring this setting by multiple methods may create a conflict on client computers. You should enable only one option for proxy redirection at a time. For improved security on the client computer, ensure that Symantec Endpoint Protection WSS Traffic Redirection's PAC file is functional.
If you have any proxy settings already configured on the client computer, WSS Traffic Redirection PAC settings overwrite them once WSS Traffic Redirection is enabled. If you disable the policy for WSS Traffic Redirection, the previous proxy settings are restored.
